Instructions for Women's Clothing for a Cornhusk Doll

(or see the Men's Clothing for Cornhusk Dolls)

... a continuation from Cornhusk Doll Instructions

1.Tie thin end of 6 leaves around the waist with the broad ends pointing up toward the head. Peal the leaves down over the tie to form the skirt.

2. For the shawl, twist the thin ends of two leaves at the back of the doll's neck.

3. Bring the broad ends of the shawl leaves around the shoulders to the front of the doll, so they cross over the chest.

4. Tie a wide belt at the waist, over the shawl and tie at the back of the skirt.
